Add fresh, natural flavor to your favorite chicken with a few simple steps for marinating. It’s one of the easiest ways to ensure tender, juicy, deliciousness on your table.

  1. For easier handling and cleanup, marinate the chicken in a plastic, zip-seal food-storage bag instead of a dish. Squeeze out the air and refrigerate, turning occasionally to enhance the marination process.
  2. For best flavor, marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes before cooking but not for more than 24 hours.
  3. Discard any leftover marinade after removing chicken. NEVER use it on cooked foods.
  4. When grilling chicken marinated in an oil-based marinade, check the chicken often, moving pieces if needed with tongs. Also, keep a spray bottle of water nearby because oil marinades burn more easily and can cause flare-ups.
